Alternators are commonly found in cars, truck and other vehicles. What makes alternators worth money in scrap is the wound copper wire that is inside so check for the current Alternators Scrap Prices. Alternators should be brought to your local scrap metal yard or auto recycler to be scrapped when they are no longer of use to you.

Are Alternators Like Electric Motors?
Alternators are similar to electric motors because they both have copper windings and have steel cases on the outside. Sometimes scrap yards will pay more for alternators because of their higher copper yield, but it depends on the yard and how they do business.
